New York: ‘Mean Girls’ star Lindsay Lohan has claimed that she has a ‘family connection’ to the Gotti crime clan.

Lohan, 24, who has been tipped to play Victoria Gotti in the upcoming movie ‘Gotti: Three Generations’, said she has known the family since she was 3-years-old.

“My dad was in jail with the grandfather,” the New York Post quoted her as saying in reference to Victoria’s dad, Gambino family boss John Gotti.

In the late 1990s, the actress’ father, Michael, did a four-year stretch in prison, where Lohan says the jailbirds crossed paths.
